It's that time of year again. The morning commute suddenly slows as the cars double and school buses appear on the roads. With schools reopening, parents driving their children to high school, and college students driving themselves there can be a dramatic difference not only in the flow of traffic but also in the availability of parking during the school year.
Even more so, the data shows that the first month of school reopening corresponds with a higher volume of individual cars used to transport students, in part due to comfort, ease, and the working out of future carpool plans. Even those schools that have reasonable parking spaces can find them quickly filled by staff and students, with the overflow spilling onto streets or into the lots of neighboring businesses.
These issues create problems. Frustrated local businesses, enforcement by parking officers, and late students all add stress, complexity, and time. The front office staff are engulfed with calls, complaints, and signing tardy sheets to students even missing entire classes; these issues can have a negative impact on school environments. Beyond those issues, local businesses face challenges receiving their deliveries, and their customers circle over and over to find a spot, raising frustration on all sides.
Parking does not have to be analog or beta. Technology advances exist today to support your school and business to effectively deal with these issues. Roker Inc. can help you find creative and innovative solutions that are cost-effective and efficient. Reach out today to find your unique solution.
